Support and opportunity
Our Sixth Form provides a supportive atmosphere and range of extra-curricular activities that enable you to grow into confident, articulate and independent young person.
Our Sixth Form is friendly, diverse, welcoming and caring place. Everybody knows each other and we enjoy a family-like atmosphere. Our internal and external students quickly make strong friendships, which they develop through participating in our extra-curricular activities, including netball, cadets, choir, debating, the Model UN, trips and more.
Our dedicated Sixth Form team understand the importance of your education. We have a dedicated Head of Sixth Form and a Sixth Form Learning Mentor who work tirelessly to help our students fulfil their potential in the two years they are at Westminster City.
While your time in our Sixth Form will be an action-packed two years that you will enjoy, there may be moments when you need some support. Our students encourage each other through their studies, and our experienced and approachable Sixth Form team will support and guide you, in combination with your subject teachers and form tutors. You will be attached to form group for your two years with a dedicated form tutor.
We are very proud of the opportunities that our Sixth Form offers. In a typical academic year, we run trips to New York, Paris and Thorpe Park. You can also participate in our array of extra-curricular activities, mentor younger pupils in our School and via links with local primary school, or simply lead our younger pupils by example.
Leadership opportunities within our Sixth Form
Leadership opportunities within our Sixth Form enable you to support our School, whilst developing important transferable skills (such as public speaking) that will be useful in any future career.
Our sixth formers apply for these positions of responsibility and are interviewed by a panel of teachers, in a process that prepares you for applying for a job in the future. Each year we have a Head Boy and Head Girl, who are supported by our Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl, our house captains, our subject prefects and our Sixth Form prefects.
The leadership responsibilities for these roles include helping with School open events, and supporting life within our Sixth Form and across our School.
Amongst many duties, our Head Boy and Head Girl frequently give speeches at different events, while our house captains help with house assemblies, our subject prefects tutor younger pupils, and our Sixth Form prefects help to drive forward different Sixth Form initiatives.
